cain is a senator. john kerry who lost to george bush is a senator. al gore who lost, remember that just a little bit in 2000, he was the vice president, so he had to be there. and one other interesting note is that speaking of bush, george w. bush and george h.w. bush, father and son, neither will be here. george 41, the older, was in the hospital. he was just released. the younger said that he is not coming because he wants to be with his father. we know, covering george bush, he likes to stay low-key, and this is not the kind of thing that he likes to come to for lots of reasons. last time he was here when he was departing the white house, it was mixed when you look at the public perception and the public reaction to it. but i think that, you know, he likes to stay out of the limelight even at traditional events like this. >> think about it. george h.w. bush was here for both reagan inaugurals, then his own inaugural, bill clinton's inaugural. i'm not sure we had a bush at the second inaugural. both were governors. the bush name has been around a lot. >> since 1997. >> and that clinton name. >

afghanistan is something we have to look at very closely as well. >> are you encouraged by john kerry's appointment as secretary of state? >> i think it's really interesting. it's kind of a no-brainer. many people expected him to be, he's been very close to president obama. he's traveled. he's got a war record, veteran of the vietnam war. and he's very involved in that. and it will be very interesting because he'll also know what the limits are in terms of congress and the whole american system when it comes to enacting foreign policy. >> are you encouraged, optimistic by where the arab spring may go this year or are you quite pessimistic? >> i've been optimistic from the beginning. there will always be bumps in the road. but for me, this monumental epochal history-making situation in that part of the world is positive. and democracy is what has to happen in that part of the world. we're seeing the ugly side of the fallout in mali. but that can be dealt with if the west is willing to do it. you can't pussy-foot around these people. you have to be there for the long haul, whether it's
to that we saw senator john kerry, likely next secretary of state. a comment on twitter the rights i think the inauguration should be a national holiday every four years, regardless of affiliation everyone should watch it. there is justice scalia of the supreme court. watching as an arlington, texas. an independent there. caller: i am here. i just wanted to call and say that i do appreciate c-span. i appreciate the statements obama made. it was very important. also, it was good to see president carter again. also good to see president bill clinton. i just want to say we're praying for you, god bless you and we do appreciate you. >> bipartisan moment with justice scalia talking to patrick leahy of vermont. you wonder what you get to eat. here is what the menu is like. the first course is steamed lobster. the second hickory-grow by sen, and wild huckleberry reduction. the third course is hudson valley apple pie with sour cream ice cream, aged cheese, and honey. the wind will be from new york state from chuck schumer the represents the united states senate. next is a call from nelson. caller:
, perhaps less inclination for american intervention. senator john kerry isine as a shoo-in to replace secretary clinton. the president's pick of chuck hagel sends a similar message -- he's a republican, but his past statements on israel and iran and his opposition to the troop surge in iraq will likely make for a heated confirmation process. if confirmed, hagel will likely lead major budgetary belt tightening at the pentagon. in the second term, many look for one last big push -- immigration reform. >> the second term offers the president to be more risky, i think in terms of policies that they know are politically changing like immigration reform. >> with a growing latino vote, putting additional pressure ahead of 2016. >> the growing number of latinos and how they will affect the elections puts a lot of onous both parties to get something done. >> others feel the time has passed for big, bold moves. >> this gridlock in washington is very real. it is not going anywhere. the president has to wake up, determined not to be a lame duck president. >> he will be huddled with advisers, whit
john kerry. eight years later, not one gay question came up. the gay issue never came up as a wedge issue, eight years later. i think that's also a great sign of progress how far this country has come on the issue of -- on the issue of gay rights in to toe, not just same sex marriage, but should gays and lesbians be treated equally under the law, as the president said in this is inaugural address and to add on something joe just said, i'm not sure in 2014 democrats in swing districts will be running away from the president's inaugural address, i'll be curious what the president says in his state of the union address, that's where he gets down to the nitty-gritty of policy descriptions for the country. >> one of the other quick moments, i was thinking about the defense of marriage act, the fact it's coming up before the supreme court and the president gave stonewall unprecedent ed mention in the inaugural address. you had story the other day in the "new york times" about a gay couple, two women soldiers in afghanistan, who needed post-trauma counseling and went -- their chaplains tol
